On the Next Podcast: "Survival of the Dead"

With the sun shining the flowers blooming I'm happy to report the Podcast crew will be spending this weekend in the basement watching George A. Romero's latest zombie flick "Survival of the Dead".

Trailer: "Machete" Will Blow Your Mind

I do not have any freakin clue what "Machete" is about but I'm not sure that really matters. From what I can tell Danny Trejo plays a guy who is "double crossed" and then starts cutting people up. Then Cheech Marin, who plays a priest, mind you, decides he wants to help so he blows up some cars. Then Jessica Alba comes out and does some really bad acting. Then Lindsay Lohan dresses up like a nun and shoots people in the face. Oh and Steven Seagal and Don Johnson are there too. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but it doesn't really matter.

Happy Town 1.2: "I Came to Haplin for the Waters"

This week’s episode of “Happy Town” actually answered one of the larger questions of the show. Turns out local pizza shop owner Dave Duncan killed old man Friddle in an act of vigilante justice. Unfortunately for Dave though it looks like Jerry Friddle had a pretty solid alibi for the kidnappings that happened in Haplin years ago so Big Dave may have just killed an innocent man. Luckily though his best friend is the towns newly appointed Sheriff Tommy Conroy so he might have the law on his side.

Trailer: "I Spit on Your Grave" Remake

Back when I was a young lad in Upstate NY my brother and I would go to the local video store every Friday night and randomly pick a few horror movies to watch. We saw some real doozies but one film the store owner flat out refused to rent to us "I Spit on Your Grave". Over twenty years later I finally saw the movie realized that woman did me a giant favor. I'd like to send her a card thanking her for keeping my young eyes from witnessing what Netflix calls "one of the longest and most violent gang-rape scenes on film".

Trailer: "Dead Space 2" Trailer Hits

When I first heard of "Dead Space" I thought "oh wow, they've base a game off of my genital region in High School." HAHA, get it? It turns out the game was one of the best first person shooters to hit the gaming systems in a long time and it was scary as hell to boot. Well now we have the trailer for "Dead Space 2" and all signs point to it being just as kick ass as the first.

"Dead Space 2" is expected to hit the PS3, Xbox or PC sometime in Q1 2011

Happy Town 1.1: "In This Home on Ice"

Haplin Minnesota, also known as Happy Town to the locals, might possibly be the greatest place on earth. The fishing’s good, there’s no crime and because of a giant bread factory it smells like fresh rolls all the time. Kind of gets you all warm and fuzzy huh? Alright so there was the whole yearly disappearance of one of the residents but honestly for all the good in the town I think giving up one person a year is a fair trade off. Now, five years after the last disappearance there’s been a murder in Happy Town and that’s where the first episode of the show starts out.

Preview: Season Finale of "Ugly Americans" Tonight on Comedy Central

"Ugly Americans", I hardly knew ye. No, the Comedy Central show isn't being canceled it's just wrapping up its season tonight with a delightful little treat titled "Social Services Shutdown" In it our lead character Mark struggles with the shutdown of the social services department. Alright you got me I haven't seen the show before. I've heard wonderful things though and tonight's episode features the voice of that creepy blond haired guy from "30 Rock"

Check out a preview of tonight's episode below. New episodes will air in October.

Check Out "Happy Town" Tonight on ABC

There hasn't been much promotion for the new ABC show "Happy Town" which premiers tonight on the old boob tube. If it sucks though that might not be such a bad thing as it will most likely be canceled pretty quickly. Of course in all honesty if it's really good there's a solid chance it won't be around long either. In any case there's a 95% chance Eric is going to make one of us underlings watch it tonight so let's get to it.

Trailer: "Burning Bright" Has a Crazy Ass Tiger

"Bengal tiger is the real deal", that's my new favorite movie quote of all time. It's awesome and true, you can't really top that. It's also just one of the reasons I love the trailer for the new flick "Burning Bright". Here's a few more reasons: Meatloaf is a black market animal salesmen, there's a crazy ass killer Bengal tiger, Garret Dillahunt once again plays a creepy asshole and did I mention there's a buck wild bengal tiger?

On the Next Podcast: "I Sell The Dead"

This week the gang heads back into the basement to check out "I Sell The Dead". The flick recently found its way to DVD after making the festival circuit for almost a year and we've got our grubby little hands all over it. I'm just looking forward to watching something that doesn't involve corpse fucking or genital mutilation.
